OT: Harry Zolnierczyk Suspended Four Games

Anyone else think this is way to harsh of a suspension?

He got four games for "Charging". He left his feet right before the hit, but other than that this seemed like a legit body-check. Not necessarily saying it was a clean hit, but a 4 game suspension seems like overkill.

What has hockey come to if you can't crush a guy crossing the blue-line + Cutting to the middle with his head down? Mike Lundin was asking to get hit there. Scott Stevens would have killed that guy.

You're right. Other than the dirty hit part, it was a clean hit.

Precisely the type of hit they are trying to get rid of. He could have lined him up and rammed his shoulder into his chest and knocked the wind out of him. Instead he left his feet and now there is the possibility that Lundin could be out for a while or may never be the same player again.

Shoulder to head, left his feet, and a predatory hit on a prone player....

I'm fine with 4 games.

I would've said 2-3 but whatever, not the end of the world.

Condra got a 10/10 on the dive to draw the PP. Doesn't matter though, it's the Islanders so nobody cares.

The big thing with the Leafs that they have benefitted from is no loser points. When we go to OT we finish the game off. We have the second most wins (13) in the conference, that will help us in any tie breaker down the road. Big game tomorrow against Jersey, with a win we climb into 5th.

Edit: Actually we don't we would've played more games than Ottawa, my bad.

Consistency is still an issue, but that was a blatant headshot with a significant jump. What a moronic hit.

No you're right. If we win tomorrow, we pass them in the standings.

They are 12-7-4 (23 GP), and if we win we go to 14-9-0 (23 GP)

he launched himself when he delivered the hit which is illegal. i'd say 2 games should've been enough. 4 seems excessive.

I was hoping the Isles could hold on with a minute left up 2-1, but OF COURSE they took a penalty

Fan of neither team. my initial reaction watching the video..guy left his feet, head contact was pretty much the initial contact with forearm, possibly the elbow.Guys head snaps back like he's doing a mexican tequila popper. In today's NHL, yes that is worth 4 games. Guys should know better and keep their feet on the ground when hitting. Lundin should keep his head up when moving laterally across a blue line. Does not excuse jumping into a guy leading with your forearm like that.
